To commemorate Washington State Parks' 100th birthday, Saturday, March 30, has been declared a "free day." Visitors will not be required to display a Discover Pass when visiting a Washington State Park.
In Whatcom County, that applies to Birch Bay State Park, Larrabee State Park and Peace Arch State Park.
The state park system was established in 1913 when the Washington State Legislature established the State Board of Park Commissioners.
Washington State Parks will celebrate the centennial of the state park system all year with events and activities in parks across the state. To learn what activities and events are scheduled, visit parks.wa.gov/events.
